Summary: This is a beautiful sounding vintage Dobro Model 55 resonator. This resonator features a maple body with a spider bridge over the resonator cone with a chunky round neck. The combination of the maple body with the spider bridge gives this guitar a great sound that’s warm with plenty of attack and resonance from the resonator. It has been repainted a dark green and from the photos the lacquer can be seen on the edge of the cone.

Body: Maple with a spider bridge and resonator cone.

Neck: Rosewood fingerboard, 24.75” scale length, 1 7/8” nut width, 12 open frets/19 total frets, pearl dot inlays.

Pickups/Hardware: Resonator cone with spider style bridge, classical style tuning keys with white buttons.

Cosmetics: This guitar has been repainted a dark green. A hole has been drilled through the headstock (See Photos Please). It has various nicks, dings, and scratches throughout. The tuning keys have been greased as to not put too much pressure on the white button tuning keys. Overall, this dobro has some cosmetic issues, but it plays and sounds fantastic.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this instrument with a new set of strings. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.

Modifications: This dobro has been repainted. (See Photos Please)

Weight: 5.656 lbs.
